Massachusetts Lighthouse Photography at Old Scituate Light

Old Scituate Light on Cedar Point in Scituate, MA is one a heck of a great and iconic New England Lighthouse location. I love visiting here and this New England outdoors photo adventure awarded beautiful sunrise light and cloud cover. I approximately arrived 30 minutes before sunrise and immediately made my way up onto the seawall. The first thing that caught my eye was another photographer. After a brief hello I noticed a few lobster cage washed upon the seawall and pebble beach below the lighthouse. I immediately knew that those traps would find their way into my photography compositions as they were destined for great foreground elements. So, almost the entire photo shoot focused on those lobster cages and how to incorporate them with the lighthouse for stronger Seascape Photography images. This was one of the later images when I was on my way back to the parking lot and car when I set up one more time. The early warm light painted the scenery in beautiful hues and I was unable to resist and call it a day. Glad I released the shutter this last time!

Aperture for this image was f/22 resulting in 1/10 of a second exposure time at ISO100. During post processing I adjusted brightness, lighting, saturation and contrast before removing dust spots and sharpening the final image of the historic Scituate Lighthouse.

Good light and happy photo making!
